Hello everyone.

Im looking at getting a new stereo system but im not sure what to get exactly.

My budget is $200
Right now i have a 200 watt "shelf system" with ~360 watts hooked up to it. So im looking for an upgrade.

I would like to get a component/"rack" system. But i dont think i have enough to get that, along with new speakers too (which i want)

So if anyone knows of a component setup thats cheap and powerful enough, please let me know!!

Otherwise, im looking at another, larger, and powerful "shelf system". Its a 540 watt Sony, with a nice subwoofer.

(LINK IN NEXT POST, NOT ALLOWED TO POST LINKS YET)

And seeing as its pretty powerful, i may be hooking up some of my own speakers to it anyway (keeping the sub). So i need something with regular speaker wire connectors, not plugs.

So far ive read that the bass is excellent on that system. And in the store the woofer looked huge. They said the treble wasnt great, but then i have my own speakers anyway to make up for it if i have to.

If anyone knows a better option than the one i found, please show me!!!

Thanks in advance everyone.

The Sony thing isn't bad, but personally I would go for a used receiver and used speakers. If you keep your eyes open, you can get a decent system on craigslist, ebay, or audiogon for a song.
